One of the first serial monoplane fighter aircraft with retractable landing gear was the I-16, developed by the N.N. Polikarpov Design Bureau. Its maiden flight was December 30, 1934. The Type 24 modification featured an M-63 engine and reinforced landing gear. That type was produced in 1939 and 1940. In the summer of 1941 I-16 fighters were the basis of Soviet Fighter Aviation along with the I-153. They were used in combat until mid-1943.
